Michael Tsai’s must-have shareware program, SpamSieve, has just been updated to version 2.9.2. The new version, a 10 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and improvements:

– Improved compatibility with the forthcoming OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

– The recommended condition for the Apple Mail rule is now Every Message rather than Message Type Is Mail. SpamSieve will auto-update your rules at launch on OS X 10.7 if Mail is running.
SpamSieve is better at detecting a certain type of tricky spam message.

– Worked around an OS bug that prevented SpamSieve from properly analyzing some message attachments.

– False negative files now have the .eml extension so that they work with Quick Look, etc.

– The Setting Up a Spam Filtering Drone section of the manual has been updated with simpler instructions for Apple Mail and new instructions for setting up a drone using Microsoft Outlook 2011.

– Added the Using a Spam Mailbox on the Server section of the manual (for Apple Mail).

– Updated various graphics for retina displays.

– If the Apple Mail plug-in cannot be installed due to a folder ownership problem, SpamSieve will now ask for an administrator password to try to fix the folder for you.

– Reverted to version 1.2.3 of the Growl SDK to avoid problems with high CPU usage, internal errors, and crashes.

РImproved SpamSieve’s reporting of unexpected errors as well as script errors from Apple Mail.

– SpamSieve no longer responds at all to certain invalid commands. This should work around an OS bug that could lead to crashes.

– The crash reporter can now make recommendations for you based on the contents of the crash log.

– Added a link to the forum in the Help menu.

SpamSieve is available for a US$30 registration fee and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to run. The new version can either be downloaded directly from the web site or brought up to the current version via the program’s built-in update feature.

If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, let us know in the comments.
